DOOM 3 1.3.1 Fixed Patch v4.2

This patch was the fix I needed to make Doom 3 work with Win7 64bt. It works great for me. Thank you!

Now for a side note for those having resolution problems getting Doom 3 to run at 1920 X 1080 etc.. you have to edit the Autoexec.cfg file in the Doom3\Base folder.

For example:

set r_mode -1
set r_customWidth 1920
set r_customHeight 1080
set image_lodbias "-1.0"
set image_anisotropy 0
set r_multiSamples 8
set r_aspectRatio 1

This is the way mine is set up at the moment... You can alter the multiSamples (AA), and you can alter the anisotropy (AF), if you choose to. The AA right now is set to 8X with these settings, but you can use 0,2,4,8,16? Same goes for AF with the 0,2,4,8,16 I think? I just have it set to 0 for now, but by all means try out 16 if you like. I think it looks pretty good like this anyhow.

Also keep in mind if you want to set up a different resolution, you can sub your own resolution numbers in place of the customHeight/Width, but keep in mind the aspectRatio 1 may need to be changed to a 2 to fit your screen:
aspectRatio 1= 16:9

aspectRatio 2= 16:10 (I think?)

Once you've finished tweaking the Autoexec.cfg file, click save of course, and launch Doom3 to check it out. Hopefully everything is working as it should except in my case it still lists the resolution as the lowest possible setting in the game, but I think it's just because there is no preset for 1920 X 1080 listed in the game menu. So don't be alarmed to see that. Just load up the game and it'll be looking good.

I hope this helps all of those who had the same problems I did. It works for me. Give it a try and good luck.

Sorry I was wrong about the AF settings.

(The following I found at a certain tweakguides com Doom3_8 html)

image_anisotropy [1,2,4,8] - This setting determines the level of Anisotropic Filtering used in Doom 3. Valid values are 1, 2, 4, and 8. The higher the value, the lower your performance, but the crisper textures will appear in the distance. Note that 1 is the lowest you can set for Anisotropic - 0 will simply default back to 1. Also note that if you have forced Anisotropic Filtering in your graphics card's control panel, it will override this setting, so for optimal performance set the Anisotropic Filtering level in your control panel to 'Application Preference', and adjust the level here.

(End of quote from tweakguides)

.... So yeah, sorry about that. Set AF to 8 instead of the 16 I stated in my previous post.

Okay ... just so you know, the autoexec.cfg you've created is in most cases not going to be executed automatically, so if it wasn't executed try opening console and type "exec autoexec.cfg"

Tried to run on Win 10, 64 bit system. Tried using all available compatibility modes. Started in a tiny DOS window, but aborted with incompatible command. Back to the drawing board

Have you tried reinstalling the game ?, that command prompt Window isn't supposed to show up .

Adding this patch results in the game asking for the Doom 3 CD-Key and it will not accept the key that was entered when it was originally installed from CD.

The doomkey file has the original entered key (minus the last two characters)

Starting the game with the internet disconnected makes no difference.

Un-patched game runs without a problem.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure, Because basically this patch is just every previous game patch combined into one easy to extract patch, I Have changed absolutely nothing, Ask Bethesda or redeem your CD-Key on steam .

Thanks for your reply. As its the original CD version, I've had no dealings with Bethesda or Steam. I've also noticed since my post that my original CD-Key is one that is available on the web - so that may be the reason that it won't work with the patched version. I guess I'll have to stick with the original un-patched version which works O.K.

Ok, just so you know the unpatched version is "Outdated" and won't support most recent mods and won't allow you to join Multiplayer servers .

Did you ever find a fix? I have the same problem.

It might be because of Steam version, Steam version is by default Updated to 1.3.1 so i think the patch is causing a CD Key conflict, maybe you should avoid using it for Steam .

Changes are not noticeable before or after installing the patch, But it is required if you want to join Multiplayer games or run mods that are compatible only with this game version patch (1.3.1) .

If you're having an issue, Describe it here .

You shouldn't install it if you're using Steam version, it's already patched to v1.3.1.

Locate your Doom 3 folder by clicking the button "Browse" then select it, then Click "Extract", If it asks to overwrite files click "Yes to all" .

I downloaded and extracted everything to it's proper position but when I start the game it gets to the intro screen then shuts down and gives me a message saying that I have the wrong version of the DLL game API.

do you know what's wrong? the un-patched version of the game works just fine.

Which version are you installing this on, CD-Retail or Steam ? BFG or Non BFG ?
* If It's CD-Retail it should work fine, If it's Steam or BFG Edition you shouldn't install it.
